In mood for a vacation | Weekly Snapshot

Yet another week has gone by with no end in sight for the pandemic. Being able to distinguish weeks became a challenge months ago, so no surprises there. But the weather is getting colder and winter is coming (hopefully not Martin's winter - we had enough of that this year already). I used to love winter, I used to look forward to it. But for the past few years, it has tended to be a very gloomy season. I'm usually just looking forward to it ending. So, this year, it's going to be harder to get through the season, especially since we are all still mostly at home. Mind you, I don't mind the restrictions as they do have a useful purpose, but wish more people followed them well and that we had done a better job when the weather was warmer to keep the virus at bay so that it didn't have to last this long.

Teaser Tuesdays -- Feb 16, 2010


Teaser Tuesdays

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

There are only 13 chapters in this book (338 pages), but the interesting fact is the book starts at chapter 12, and counts down to chapter 1, finally ending on chapter 13. That feels to me a curious structure for the book, and I'm interested to see how the author pulls off the going-to-the-past stunt in one hour increments to change something that happened, which, as we know from the experience of reading time travel books, is a violation of time traveling, as the past has never been subject to change (except maybe in LOST ::wink::).


"And they were a spot-on match. So you're going to need to be real clear as to how your fingerprints and only your fingerprints are on this gun."

Nick sat there, his mind spinning. He had never seen this gun, let alone touched it.

~ Pg. 17, The 13th Hour by Richard Doetsch.

Terrific teaser -- I love that line: "You're going to need to be real clear as to how your fingerprints and only your fingerprints are on this gun." It would be tough to talk your way out of that one!
